Yesterday the Foreverland Press launched Tara Ison's book A Child Out of Alcartaz. It was so exciting to post things about the book and Alcatraz. I learned all sorts of things that I never knew about the prison and the inmates who spent their lives there. My all time favorite was the inmate who escaped and hid inside a small cave until the guards found him. It seems like the rest of the inmates who tried to escape jumped right into the water which was the worst idea they could possible have! Between the water temperatures and the currents the inmates didn't stand much of a chance of escaping. Tara answered questions posted to her by us and the others who attended the Facebook event, so I would say all-in-all it was a fun day for all of us.
